Kris Orlowski

Hailing from the depths of Seattle, honesty sings true in this Pop-Folk journey with tales of adventure and reflections of change, adversity and irony. Influenced by the pop sensibility of bands like the Beatles, and the Shins, with the eclecticism of Paul Simon and other notable creatives, Kris Orlowski shines bright on this release. Witness the lush strings on "Small is Beautiful" or stripped-down, acoustic intimacy of 'Waiting', as Orlowski harmonizes (with his sister as the guest vocalist) about keeping hope alive while feeling lost. 'Sweet Little Girl', another stand out track, is sure to be a part of many summer soundtracks with its California, Americana-Pop libido. Produced by Gwen Jones and Brandon Busch the album instrumentation is economical, but varied in song structure and palette. Beyond the drums, acoustic guitar and bass that make up the bands basic sound, the album features a variety of instrumentation; epic kazoos, synths, strings, handclaps, keys, organs, vibra-slap, piles of bass effects, Taurus pedals, guest vocalists and a screaming electric guitar solo. A bands sophomore album is bound to be on many tastemakers ‘up and coming’ playlists.
